Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

Jess and Duncan

Apologies in advance, there will be a lot of words, and even more pictures… Jess first contacted me about us shooting their wedding while they were on and overland trip around Africa. I would be lying if I said that sentence right there didn’t make me fall in love with these two just a little bit before we had even met! Jess and Duncan’s wedding was to be held on her dad’s farm in the Waterberg in Limpopo.  They had found a beautiful spot in a tree clearing that had spectacular sunset views that they would be ferrying their guests in old Land Rovers and tractors to for their ceremony. When we met with them the day before their wedding to see the spot and chat business, we were treated to truly one of the most exquisite sunsets we had ever seen anywhere in the world and understood exactly why they had chosen this spot. After a drink with them and their family we felt right at home sharing a part in their special day. After spending the morning watching a wedding materialize in an old barn and exploring Jess’ dad’s war and weapon museum, I headed out to hang out with the girls. Walking into the cosy little room they were all getting ready in, I immediately felt at home with this funny and awesome group of women. It was as I was settling in to my morning with the girls that an insane cold front and storm moved in and absolutely saturated the farm, dashing any hopes of the ceremony being in the beautiful tree clearing. But as all the plans began falling apart, something truly beautiful and magical happened, her dad an ex military man ensured a new and equally wonderful wedding would happen and an incredible energy and sense of “being in it together” took hold of the farm and the most incredible wedding took place. Literally as Jess and her dad were driving down to the ceremony which was to be in the reception, Duncan decided to move it outside as the rain had just stopped. People emerged from their rain shelters and made a semi circle around Jess and Duncan, Jess’ 30 year old horse, Cloudy, was in the background, and right there they made their vows. From then on, their day was just beautiful, unique and perfect, from the near nude groomsmen, to the dramatic and cold sky during the couple shoot, honestly the BEST groomsmen and groom’s speech (and song) we have ever heard, and the best “Impi” dancing. Jess and Duncan, you guys, your friends and your family are wonderful. Thank you for letting us be a part of your wonderful wedding x

The roads were a bit muddy the day of the wedding, but nowhere near as muddy as they were going to get later…

And then the guys lost their pants! Such a hilarious group of people!

But the wetness didnt stop there! As we took off in the old Series II Landy, the canopy spilled all over Duncan forcing him to drive “side saddle”. Honestly we did not stop laughing with these guys who just took all of this in their stride.

  • These awesome humans are getting married today and we can’t wait to be a part of it!
  • It’s all in the small things.
  • I love how the light is cast onto Elaine’s dad as he walks behind her. While it may look like Elaine is walking down the stairs into a black hole, I can assure you that it was actually her ceremony just in the room down below.
  • Last minute lippy touch up before she’s off to get her marrying on 💃🏽
  • Ed’s face here as he waits for Amanda to come down the aisle is just everything! .

  • Yesterday on our run I came across a wet, dirty little bunny. I thought there would be no way I would be able to catch him, but he hopped up to me and I scooped him up and carried him home. He seems to be settling in okay, now just to see if our two grumpy old man buns will accept a newbie, otherwise we are going to have to find this little charmer a home. (There is more bunny than is visible here...)
  • This babelicious golden light makes my heart skip a beat, Lisa and Gareth are kind of alright too...

  • Matri and Nick rock/paper/scissored who would do their vows first. Just one of many ways they made their day completely theirs. Their intimate city wedding is up on our blog now x
  • Fell in love with this feeling. We had just finished up some pics with Dee and her girls(and bridesman) pre ceremony and she was about to walk out to where her dad was waiting to take her to Emile. It was just a fleeting moment as she walked out of the house, but her face here just absolutely captivated me with all the happiness, contentment, nerves, and excitement it held.

  • So this is us...Partners in life, adventures and all things.

We met at a music festival, fell in love over our common passion for developing our own photos and many long and late night deep conversations about the world, life and pretty much everything in between.

Somehow that was 13 years ago, and those two arty alternative kids are married, have bunnies, a crazy two colour eyed cat called Bowie, a book collection too large to fit comfortably in our house and have somehow managed to piece together our love of photography and traveling the world together into our business of getting to document the love stories of awesome humans. And this is how we get to make our living? It’s so awesome it feels like cheating.

We love the shit out of weddings and getting the chance to share these amazing adventures with people. We get that letting people in to share something as intimate and personal as a marriage is a really big deal, and it’s something that never stops making us really stoked that people trust us enough to make their memories.
